  • Spectroscopy: Simple solution for soil sample

    Farmers and gardeners know their soil texture can make a big difference in their success. Different plants have different needs for water, nutrients, and air. When they grow in soil that has the right texture, it is easier to deliver the right amount of water, fertilizer, or pesticide to the plants. Then they grow better. Traditional ways of analyzing soil texture are slow. Danish researchers ...
